Can I still use Sandra Betzina method?

I'm working on a Hot Patterns Marrakesh pants...

I was so determined to try Sandra Betzina's fly front zieer method, but I didn't realize that you needed fly extensions as part of the patterns.
I've already cut the fabrics... Front pants pieces and separate zipper fly and fly front and fly shield.
Is it still somehow possible to use Sandra Betzina method?
Can I stitch the facings to the front pieces, or would it make it too bulky?

The same thing happened to me this week. I sewed on the extensions. It worked, but I was using pretty thin material.

Thank you Patti, I tried it... I'm also using thin material. It worked, and it's the best zipper job ever! :)
